Chief commercial officer for Gatwick Airport, Jonathan Pollard, said the airport is “encouraged by the number of people looking to travel this Christmas’ but said new coronavirus testing requirements have ‘impacted some people’s travel plans over the holiday period”.

He added: “While we understand the need for measures to stop the spread of the Omicron variant until more scientific information on its level of harm is available, it is vital these are in place no longer than absolutely necessary.”
